Manufacturing Standards

I here you and believe manufacturers could do a better job. I think a fair example of the problem is the old RIO Grand Speys which are roughly under-rated by two weight increments. Also agree that with the variables involved it is a bit naieve to assume you can by an 8/9 rod, an 8/9 line and you'll be dialed forever. It simply seems to me that if the line head weights are published and ditto the recommend weight zone, ( in the same medium ), on the rods, a consumer's opportunity to match up well has increased. Admittedly, the aces on this site have unraveled most, if not all, the mysteries. Still, I don't think we should have to wait for months of consumer testing to find out what the real rates are / should be. - - - - and then there's the thrill of the mystery itself ! ?
